         Oeuvres Posthumes.

      A Paris, chez Lavillette, 1792. - in-12. 243pp. Broché, couverture muette de l'époque. Edition Originale de cet ouvrage publié à la mort de Rulhière et qui se présente comme un avant-goût des révélations sur Catherine II consignées par l'auteur dans son 'Histoire ou Anecotes sur la Révolution de Russie en l'année 1762', et qu'il avait promis de ne pas publier du vivant de l'intéressée. L'ouvrage attendit effectivement la mort de l'impératrice en 1796 pour voir le jour en 1797. "Cet ouvrage n'est pas en entier de Rulhière: il n'y a de cet écrivain qu'un Mémoire sur les affaires de Russie et de Pologne, et sur l'impératrice. Le deuxième morceau de ce recueil est un Mémoire, qu'on croit de M. de Chavigny, chargé de balancer, en 1785, à La Haye, les efforts de l'Empereur contre la France: il paraît avoir une grande analogie avec ce qui précède. L'objet de ce Mémoire est d'examiner si les progrès de la Russie sont plus à craindre pour l'équilibre de l'Europe que ceux de la France. Enfin, le troisième et dernier morceau contient des Anecdotes de la vie galante du maréchal de Richelieu, par Rulhière, lesquelles se lisent avec curiosité, même après tout ce qu'on a publié sur ce haut personnage" (Quérard). "Tableau esquisse de la fermentation qui agite actuellement l'Empire Ottoman, la Russie & la Pologne", "Commerce de Russie", "Mare e de la mer Germanique", "Palais impe rial de Moscou", etc. Le nom de l'auteur a souffert d'une coquille à l'impression de la page de titre ("Rhulieres"). Traces de mouillures marginales. Assez bon exemplaire par ailleurs, non rogné. Catalogue Russica de la Bibliothèque de Saint-Pétersbourg, R1517. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

         Clarissa : or the history of a young lady. Complete in 8 volumes

      London: B. Law and Son, T. Cadell, and more, 1792. First Edition. Bound in near contemporary full tree calf with gilt-blocked leather lable to the spine. Some wear to the spine and panel edges as with age. Remains well-preserved overall; bright, clean and sharp-cornered.. Physical description; 8 volumes. Summary; Pressured by her unscrupulous family to marry a wealthy man she detests, the young Clarissa Harlowe is tricked into fleeing with the witty and debonair Robert Lovelace. He, however, proves himself to be an untrustworthy rake whose vague promises of marriage are accompanied by unwelcome advances. Pressured by her unscrupulous family to marry a wealthy man she detests, the young Clarissa Harlowe is tricked into fleeing with the witty and debonair Robert Lovelace and places herself under his protection. Lovelace, however, proves himself to be an untrustworthy rake whose vague promises of marriage are accompanied by unwelcome and increasingly brutal sexual advances. And yet, Clarissa finds his charm alluring, her scrupulous sense of virtue tinged with unconfessed desire. Told through a complex series of interweaving letters, ""Clarissa"" is a richly ambiguous study of a fatally attracted couple and a work of astonishing power and immediacy. A huge success when it first appeared in 1747, and translated into French and German, it remains one of the greatest of all European novels. Subjects; England — Social life and customs — Fiction. General & literary fiction ; Novels, other prose & writers ; Literary studies: 16th to 18th centuries. Fiction / Classics. England - Fiction. Kidnapping - Fiction. Young women - Crimes against - Fiction. Genres; Bibliography. Epistolary fiction. Novel.

         Thomas Mifflin

      July 18, 1792. Partly Printed Manuscript Document Signed,"Tho. Mifflin," one page, 9" x 8". [Philadelphia], Pennsylvania, July 18, 1792. To Daniel Brodhead, Esquire, Surveyor-General. Light stain and partial separations at folds, all in blank areas. Fine with a dark signature.

In part: "Whereas, Charles Carroll (of Carrollton) applied for, and paid into the office of the Receiver General, of the Land-Office, the whole of the purchase money for Nine hundred acres of land within the last purchase made of the Indians, East of the Allegheny river and Conawango creek, at and after the rate of Five Pounds for every hundred acres of the same... The said application and warrant are numbered one thousand five hundred. There are therefore to authorise and require you to survey or cause to be surveyed for the said Charles Carroll the said quantity of acres... ."

The General Assembly of Pennsylvania used the Purchase of 1784 or "Last Purchase" as an opportunity to implement new land laws. Land located west of the Allegheny River and Conawango Creek was set aside for Depreciation and Donation lands while land east of these rivers was opened to settlement as soon as preemption applications by squatters already living in the area between Lycoming Creek and Pine Creek were settled. Depreciation Land was sold to compensate veterans of the Revolutionary War who had received pay in depreciated currency and Donation Land was provided to officers and veterans of the Pennsylvania Line who served for the duration of the war. After the preemption claims were settled, the initial sale of land in the eastern portion of the Last Purchase took place.

At his death at 95 in 1832, land purchaser Charles Carroll (of Carrollton) was the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence. Succeeding Benjamin Franklin as President of Pennsylvania in 1788, Thomas Mifflin was the first Governor of Pennsylvania, serving from 1790-1799. In 1789, Brodhead was appointed Surveyor-General of Pennsylvania and served until resigning in 1800. One year earlier, he married Rebecca Mifflin, the widow of Thomas Mifflin's brother.

         Travels during the Years 1787, 1788, and 1789. Undertaken more paticularly with a View of ascertaining the Cultivation, Wealth, Resources, and National Prosperity, of the Kingdom of France.

      Bury St Edmund's: printed by J. Rackham; for W. Richardson, 1792. - Grand in-4. VIII. 566pp. 2ff. 3 cartes dépliantes, dont une coloriée. Cartonnage de l'époque, dos fendillé renforcé sommairement. Edition Originale de cet ouvrage important de l'agronome et économiste anglais Arthur Young (1741-1820), qui s'était rendu en France sur l'invitation du duc de La Rochefoucauld pour étudier l'agriculture et la comparer avec celle de son pays. "Il visita le midi de la France jusqu'au Pyrénées, retourna en Angleterre, puis revint l'année suivante examiner avec plus d'attention ce qu'il n'avait qu'entrevu" (Larousse). "Par un hasard heureux, l'époque de ce voyage de Young a coïncidé avec avec le commencement de notre Révolution et il n'existe dans nul autre ouvrage une peinture aussi vivante de notre grand mouvement national. Tout se réunit donc pour faire de sa relation un véritable monument, surtout pour nous, Français, qui ne possédons dans notre langue aucun document aussi complet sur l'état de notre pays en 1789" (Léonce de Lavergne, cité par Larousse). "The best account of the state of France previously to the Revolution" (McCulloch). Inscription manuscrite "John Haggard", datée de 1815.

         The Reception of the Diplomatique & his Suite, at the Court of Pekin

      1792 - Etching and engraving with the publisher's original colour, measuring 328 by 404 mm. Trimmed to within millimetres of the plate-mark.Verso bears a few small pieces of another sheet to which the print was once mounted. Slightly browned, one small closed tear, very good otherwise with excellent colour. London, H. Humphrey, A wonderfully detailed and inventive lampooning of the first British diplomatic mission to China, depicting the reception of Macartney and his delegation by the Qianlong Emperor on the 14th of September 1793. Published exactly a year before the actual event, and a few weeks before the delegation left Portsmouth, Gillray?s print contrasts the melodramatic, gift-laden entrance of the British diplomats with a decidedly unimpressed Chinese audience. In doing so, it cannily foretells the lack of cultural understanding which hamstrung Macartney?s efforts. It even predicts his refusal to kowtow at the ceremony ? he chose to kneel instead ? a decision that was falsely believed to have been the primary cause for the Emperor?s rebuttal of the British requests. Gillray wastes no opportunity in adding cutting contemporary references to his picture; making great use of the myriad gifts presented by the Embassy to symbolically doom the endeavour. A particularly interesting barb lies in the folio of prints from Boydell?s Shakespeare Gallery, a grand publishing enterprise which ended in expensive failure (Gillray, annoyed at not being invited to contribute to Boydell?s folio, took an earlier stab at the project in a 1789 print, Shakespeare Sacrificed).

"Under the pseudonym of Britannicus, Douglas next published A Monitory Address to Great Britain in 1792, lamenting the degeneracy of the times and calling upon the king to abolish the anti-Christian practices of the slave trade, duelling, and church patronage. That same year he published The African Slave Trade, and the year after, Thoughts on Modern Politics, also concerned with the slave trade" (ODNB). The imminent publication of Douglas's "Monitory Address" is announced on the Advertisement leaf.

         Principles of Moral and Political Science; Being chiefly a Retrospect of Lectures delivered in the College of Edinburgh.

      Edinburgh & London: Printed for A. Strahan and T. Cadell, and W. Creech,, 1792. 2 volumes, quarto (260 x 208 mm). Contemporary tree calf, spines ruled gilt, red morocco labels, sprinkled edges. Ownership inscription "Henry Hunter Jun" of the Inner Temple to each front free endpaper, Italian bookseller's ticket to front pastedowns. Joints and corners skilfully restored, some surface wear to boards; occasional light spotting and the odd side-rule in pencil; a very good copy. First edition, "an expansion of a sketchy earlier version that Ferguson had published as Institutes of moral philosophy" (Chuo). In 1764, Ferguson took up the Chair of Ethics and pneumatical Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, having previously held the Chair of Natural Philosophy (from 1759). A short conspectus of his lectures was published in 1761, and the Institutes in 1769. The lectures were very popular not only with students but with members of the Edinburgh intelligentsia. It was also one of about a dozen books by Scottish authors (of a total of 550) that James Madison selected for importation into America in 1782 for the library of the U.S. Congress. The present work represents Ferguson's mature reworking of his lectures, prepared following his retirement.

         Accounts and Papers relating to Convicts on board the Hulks, and those transported to New South Wales

      London: Ordered to be printed, 1792. In fine original condition within its binding, with original stitch holes visible at the inner margins.. Foolscap folio, 110 pp., the last a docket title; a large copy with wide margins, edges uncut; a good old binding of half dark calf; quarter dark blue morocco box. One of the rarest of all First Fleet books: this was the last major publication relating to Phillip, a long and substantial parliamentary paper dating from March 1792. The collector Davidson called this work a "great rarity" and commented that a "great deal of information is not available elsewhere, and this is one of the most important of all the primary sources...". Endlessly interesting, the report prints all manner of material relating to New South Wales and transportation. It begins with comment on the skyrocketing costs associated with the Thames hulks, including the government contracts with owners Duncan Campbell and James Bradley, details of the numbers of convicts and the work being done by them under supervision.The second major section of the book (pp. 17-28) prints letters from Phillip dated between 16 June and 29 August 1790. Excerpts from six of his letters are included, one to Nepean and the others to Grenville, on subjects such as the tragic loss of the Guardian, appealing for settlers, or discussing Norfolk Island. Phillip pays particular notice to the Hawkesbury, which will "offer some desirable situations". This section also includes a letter from Major Ross.Too much focus on Phillip, however, might distract from the great mass of other material included here, which gives a remarkably full overview of what was being planned in both Sydney and London. There are reports on conditions on board convict vessels Pitt, Kitty, Neptune, Scarborough, Surprize, and Atlantic, letters from surgeons, reports from agents, substantial epistles from senior government officials to Phillip and King (including one rather moving one from Dundas about the loss of the Guardian and how much that "unfortunate Disaster" must have affected the colony, a letter which also includes Dundas' barely restrained anger about conditions on board the Second Fleet), great lists of items requested by Phillip and now being sent (including almost 10,000 gallons of rum and 33,367 needles), a fascinating letter from King to Evan Nepean regarding the purchase of live stock at the Cape of Good Hope in July 1791 (including 62 sheep and 200 fruit trees), and much else besides. Of signal interest is the five-page "Remarks and Statement of the Proceedings of Donald Trail, Master of the Neptune, during his Passage to Port Jackson" (pp.73-77), one of the earliest major published narratives of life on board a convict vessel. The Neptune was one of the horror ships of the Second Fleet, and Trail's report certainly makes for grim reading, with reports of malignant fevers and numberless deaths: "The Convicts that died in Stoke's Bay", he writes at one point, "were always sunk with Ballast brought from the Shore, except One Day, when it blew too hard to send a Boat from the Ship, and then the Body was sunk with Coals."
